The Presidential election in Haiti has been postponed several times since December due to political protests in Port-au-Prince that threaten to spread to the rest of the country.
Opposition groups denounce President Michel Martelly (whose term ends on Feb 7th) and accuse his party of corruption and vote-rigging. Demonstrators burn tires, overturn vehicles, block traffic and face down the riot police.
